C3 Bookshelf Speaker

Quick Overview

Clear, confident and natural sounding, the C3 boasts KEF's 130mm (5.25in.) bass driver for impressively extended low frequency response to complement the seductive realism of the sophisticated 19mm (0.75in.) tweeter and 'tangerine' waveguide. The resulting sonic performance is warm, rich in detail and compellingly three-dimensional, whether you're enjoying a favourite track or watching a movie. All of the C Series enclosures are ultra-rigid to ensure the sound you hear is untainted by any internal resonance and all are magnetically shielded to give freedom when positioning.

Aluminium dome tweeter with 'Tangerine' waveguide

The same 19mm (0.75in.) tweeter from the latest Q Series reproduces vocals with spellbinding realism - the unique 'Tangerine' waveguide disperses its sweet natural clarity evenly throughout the room and provides excellent protection from straying fingers.

Gold-plated terminals

The exceptional acoustic definition you experience depends on the recorded signal being perfectly transmitted, so to eliminate the risk of tarnishing, the binding posts of the C Series are gold-plated.
